It’s Never Too Early
I don’t know about you but I’m getting really excited about Halloween! It’s hands down my favorite holiday of the year.
Why? Well I just love traipsing around to our neighbors’ homes – including Escalade Dad’s! I think it’s great that Maya collects candy from people who usually do their best to ignore our existence.
Oh, and don’t even worry – I have no problem squashing that tiny voice in my head that says Maya’s candy might be tainted with God only knows what! Good thing I’m not a worrier.
My most favorite thing about Halloween, however, is the process of selecting a costume for Maya. This year I am encouraging her to be a Genie because there is nothing I want more than to watch my 5-year-old parade through the streets with a bare stomach and in full make up.
The Batgirl costume is tempting too! I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s every mother’s dream to see her child in vinyl cuffs and knee-high boots.
I’m just grateful that Maya isn’t a boy because then she’d be limited to being something scandalous like an astronaut or a firefighter.
The last thing I’d want to do is send her the wrong message!
I have to go now because I’m spending the day teaching Maya how to sort the laundry. Afterwards I’m going to explain to her the importance of having a hot meal waiting for her husband when he gets home from work.
Because I believe it’s never too early to start educating your daughter on her purpose in life!
